The Sidebar Video !!!

If you are wondering whats that video doing in the sidebar and if you havent guessed it yet. #3 from the left is someone you might recognize.

here is the scoop on it.

This guy I know (TGIK now) pings me other day about this stupid video on google and asks me if i am the guy in the video. I was ofcourse in complete oblivion of what he was talking about. But it turns out that he was right. Apparently TGHK was looking for hindi songs on google video. You know how google video is promoting content piracy allowing you to upload any copyrighted material. But thats another story. You can watch full length feature film (Bollywood movies) on google video. Yeah .. so he was looking for one such movie that happened to be the song in the video and was tagged with it. They found it and were making fun of the Indian guys in the clip. Then suddenly it dawns on my friend that he knows one of them. I can only imagine how it must have felt like ... man. Your old school days come to haunt you and people around you take videos and post on internet. I look completely stoned in the video.

If you think this is embarrassing then check another one that was created that time. TGIK is frantically dancing in this video here.

[updated]: Sidebar video on google video is here

blogger mingles rss feeds !!!

Originally uploaded by garg_78.
I dont know if you guys have noticed it or not. I am sure you have if you subscribe to blogs from blogspot.com or if you own one. This cant be happening to just me three times in one month.

So this time i have saved it as a picture. Notice the topmost feed of my blog and this aint my blog. This is some Derek's blog who happens to be talking about alot of technology and microsoft. Which I could very well be writing about. He lives in Seattle too. How sneaky is that. Is it some new way of introducing similar blogs
as mine in my own rss feeds ???

First i thought it was my rss reador (i was using sharpreader at that time). Now i am completely hooked to IE 7 reader and it totally rocks. It happens on IE 7 too. Its not just my blog, it happens to some of my other subscriptions too, common thread is each of them served by blogspot.com.

I am sure there is some nasty bug in RSS generating multithreaded server thats lurking out there and hits me once in a while. Let me know if you get this too. btw here is the link to actual post by Derek.

More on IE 7 reader very soon.
